I just got this trunk last night and I love it just the way it is! It was an incredible deal I picked up locally from an older man moving out of his house. I am Canadian so I especially love that it has a Canadian (as well as American) stickers.
I want to use it as a coffee table and have three kids. How can I protect it? I'm mostly concerned about spills wrecking the paper labels. I don't care if it gets more scratches, adds patina, right? What is the best medium to coat it with? Could I leave the wood and do mod podge over the stickers (is that a crazy idea?)? Poly or tung oil the whole thing (would that ruin the stickers)?
Any idea of the age too?
